For my part, I've come around to thinking that we'd be better off without
the <p class=success> or <h2 class=valid> part at all. Instead just emit
any errors and warnings. And if there are no errors or warnings, just be
silent. The binary pass/fail, valid/invalid indicator is not necessary and
not really helpful. We're not handing out badges, and the purpose of the
validator is not to give anybody a stamp of approval.
